Adding coffee to meat adds such a deep flavor. And this recipe is so easy—I put it in before work, and by the time we all get home, it's ready for us to dig in. —Jacquelynn Sanders, Burnsville, Minnesota

Ingredients

  • 1 boneless pork shoulder butt roast (3 to 3-1/2 pounds)
  • 1/3 cup ground coffee beans
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 celery ribs, chopped

  • 1-1/2 cups strong brewed coffee

Super good and easy! A crowd pleaser. I bought bone in shoulder and it was juicier than the boneless.

I may have to get back my 5-quart cooker from the thrift shop just so I can try this! It sounds great, but I will use ordinary ground coffee, I believe. That said, anything is improved by using coffee!!
